The Gateway Kickstarter Campaign
NewFilmmakers Los Angeles is excited to announce The Gateway Kickstarter Campaign for NFMLA alumni Natan Moss and Lee Sacks.
Natan premiered his first short film Odessa at NFMLA in 2008. After, he teamed up with Lee to make Little Odessa, which premiered at NFMLA in 2010 then went on to garner awards, screen at international festivals and obtain distribution. The following year Natan and Lee participated in the On Location Film festival where they won both the first place and the audience award for their short Dear Babushka.
Equal parts crime thriller and modern western, The Gateway is what happens when characters from a Tarantino film show up to a motel run by David Lynch. Sweeping vistas, a mouse farm, free cornflakes and a pool filled with bleach – The Gateway is a film that borrows heavily from many film genres but in essence falls into none.
Currently in the financing stages, they just launched The Gateway Kickstarter Campaign to raise additional funds and awareness about the project.
